Latest AP Poll: Fran is doing his thing; Texas State is receiving votes

9-1-2012uhfbvstxstforspm_0035Texas State's 30-13 win against Houston in the season opener was so big, and yet so bad, it led to the Cougars' offensive coordinator resigning after the game. It also led to the Bobcats receiving votes in the latest AP college football poll.

The Bobcats received 10 votes, that's behind Texas, TCU, and Baylor and ahead of Texas A&M.

The win against a Houston team that was favored by 36.5 points was the first game for Texas State in the FBS level.

Not sure how this win is going to translate moving forward, but don't think that Texas Tech is going to have an easy game in San Marcos on Saturday. BTW: The Red Raiders are favored by 17.5 points. That is awfuuuuuuuly tempting.

This is Dennis Franchione at his best: Taking the underwhelming and making them competitive.

Good for Fran'.
Good for Texas State AD Larry Teis for having the foresight to hire him.
And good for Texas State.

TTU is going to destroy this team. Tech last week had a total of 13 plays they used, the play book comes open this weekend. Last year Tech beat them 50-10 and that was with a lackluster defense, this D is a lot more fierce and ready. Sorry, TX State gets beat by about 50 here

Mac,

It is Larry Teis...Not Donnie Teis...Larry is a graduate of TCU and former Director of Marketing for the Frogs.

Ryan, what planet are you on???? All of my Red Raider pals are worried sick 'bout T-State, and not just about Coach Tommy's pyramid schemes... Sonny-boy Dykes is gonna look awful good in Lubbock after he beats the aggies next month... By December, I predict the Pirate's WSU team will end up with a better record than Tech... Cos at least they will show progress each week, instead of slip, slip, sliding down to the Big 12 cellar...

Tex, shut up. Wsu is a joke and will have a losing record. It's clear the author is trolling. Please take tsu and the points...and lose your money. You probably went to tcu. Tech will destroy the bobcats as they will the frogs.

Bob ... Good catch. Larry Teis' brother is Donnie, my former roommate. Thanks. Been corrected.
